  • This template categorises tagged articles into Category:Wikipedia articles needing clarification.
  • You can specify whether the template applies to an article (default) or section by adding |article or |section after the template's name. There is also the Template:Confusing section template for the sections.
  • Wikipedia recommends the use of the reason parameter to explain what is confusing. For example:
{{Confusing|reason=the furtlewangler is referred to in the plural but the diagram shows only one}}
  • When a talk page discussion is held, a direct link to that discussion can be added via the |talk= parameter. For example:
{{Confusing|talk=Template talk:Confusing#Talk parameter please!}}
  • Do not capitalize the beginning of the reason, since it is preceded by "In particular, ".
  • Do not add a full stop/period at the end of the reason because the template automatically puts a full stop/period in.
  • Please do not subst: this template.

{{Confusing|small=left}} generates:

{{Confusing|small=left|reason=the tensing of the article is ambiguous}} generates:
